Calling all dinosaur-lovers! Come 31 March 2022, travel 89 million years back to the Late Cretaceous period with Jewel Changi Airport’s (Jewel) new play attraction, the Jewel-rassic Quest – a dinosaur-themed augmented reality (AR) game that brings storytelling to life through digital interactivity. Indulge in an immersive experience to see magnificent dinosaurs such as the T-Rex and Velociraptor in action just metres in front of you. Look out for the other dinosaur species as they roam freely at Jewel’s indoor sanctuary – the Shiseido Forest Valley and HSBC Rain Vortex. The lush greenery and majestic water feature set the perfect environment, befitting the dinosaur theme that remains an evergreen favourite among the young and young-at-heart.
Set out on an adventurous journey and immerse yourself in the AR dino-verse with a specially-developed TimeLens (tablet). Trail the dinosaurs and watch them wander and fly, discover their hiding places and nests, learn about their eating habits, feed them and hunt for their eggs as you go on this 90-minute mission.
